that is great price. i have bifocals and progressive lens. also a astigmatism in left eye. doubt walmart would give me the prescription either, not without a hassle anyway. just need em really badly. eyes getting worse and my glasses got scratched up in the rehab place. they were not careful with my glasses when they moved them. i had them three years and not a scratch. not so now.

Babe,

By rights that prescription is yours, not property of the eye doctor. It is what you paid for when you got the eye exam. I would discuss ownersip of the prescription, and how a lawyer might be helpful, to the eye doctor's office and see how fast you get your prescription.

You could also sic Aging Services on them. They are there to help you when you have problems like this and can help you understand your rights.

I have astigmatism (mild) too. That's handled with the online stuff too.

My cat, Shreddy, won't leave me alone. He wants scritches or cuddles all the time. He is one of those affectionate, very demanding tom cats. He has been that way since he was kitten. I was getting annoyed. It's very distracting. Then I remembered what my DH said to me one day when I complained about it. "Ah, poor you, you're getting too much lovings."

i really liked my new doctor. he was with me for over half an hour. told me a couple things i need to do. shingles shot, i had never heard of that. have to go to pharmacy that administers meds. bone density test. and an eye exam. wants a head to toe exam in march. then will decide if he needs more tests. he asked many questions , to aid in getting to know me. we will wait and see. but first impressions were good.

Update on my work ethics...I was told that I am working too hard and to slow it down a bit. They couldn't find a single thing done wrong

As least they said it nicer than the last person who complained about me, she said I was "Anal" and made everyone else look bad.

Thursday night I will be staying late to help out the nurse working to get her supply and drug orders done for the weekend. They've been running out of stuff and instead of helping her out they just complain. So I will stay and give her the assist.

Thank you, Babe. I guess I'm just one of those who loves my job. I wouldn't do it if it wasn't fun! It can be exasperating and mind-bending, but in all it's tons of fun.
